Scale

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup non-dairy milk
  • ¼ cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons of zest (about 1 large orange)
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional Glaze


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients: oat flour, almond flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add water and milk to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 10-second increments until just warm. This will prevent the melted coconut oil from solidifying once mixed with these liquids.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients: water, milk, orange juice, orange zest, oil, sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Whisk until well incorporated.
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Whisk until just incorporated, making sure no flour patches remain.
  6. Pour batter evenly into prepared muffin pan—filling each cup all the way to the top for big, round tops, and ¾ of the way for a larger quantity of smaller muffins. Bake for 22-26 minutes. Mine took 24 minutes. Insert a toothpick to check for doneness—once it comes out clean, it’s done.
  7. Place muffin pan on a cooling rack to cool for 20 minutes. Remove muffins from muffin pan and transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely, about 1-3 hours. Optionally, in a small bowl, whisk together Glaze ingredients until thickened: confectioners’ sugar and orange juice. Drizzle muffins. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.

Notes

– *Powdered sugar substitutes: Swerve powdered sugar is a good sugar-free, low carb substitute. You can also grind the sweetener of your choice, such as Xylitol, in a coffee grinder or small blender until you get a powder. Since Swerve is a bit drier, use about 2 ½ teaspoons orange juice to make the glaze.
– *You can also add more powdered sugar if you’d like a thicker glaze.
– Storage notes: Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week in the refrigerator, or in a cool, dark environment. Glaze when ready to eat, or day of.
– To Freeze: store in an airtight container or bag, unglazed, in the freezer for up to 1-2 months. Allow to thaw for about 30 minutes at room temperature before enjoying. Or, heat in the microwave in 15 second increments until just warm.
